Cygnar was lead by Kamil Nowak.
My WTC teammate.

Unfortunately, Cygnar goes first.

Deployment :

Cygnar just ran as far as possible.
Ace used Infiltrate for fear of BE.

Durst cast Bulwark, Deceleration + FEAT.
My Jacks simply ran forward regardless of the Cygnar’s ranges.
I felt unpunished with 27 ARM vs shooting!

End of 1st round :

Kamil said, that it makes no sense to shoot at my army.
He withdrew his Jacks beyond the ranges of my charges.
The only thing that surprised me, was the Hurricane charge at Castigator, which I set up there deliberately.
There was no way that the Colossus would destroy the castigator.
Kamil wanted something else.
Hurricane has cortex damage..
I did not have the slightest idea about it.
He got rid of my jack very easily.

Templar did a few dmg to Hurricane.
I set Durst in a safe position.
BE has a Caine in shooting range..
Hmm, why not to try CK?
All I need is to roll 2x “11” to hit and I won.
First attack hits, boost and Caine got a lot of dmg.
Second attack unfortunately missed.

1-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Caine withdrew a bit + FEAT.
He also cast Calamity at Templar.
Colossus destroyed the Templar.
Chargers took care of the Castigator and BE.
Squire ran to contest left zone.

1-1 on the scenario.

Mechanik ran to contest right zone.
Devout killed Squire.
Anastasia ran to the left flag.
Durst cast Boundless Charge on Castigator, who charged and destroyed objective.

4-1 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

Cygnar took care of Devout.
Charger came to contest my zone and flag.
He also killed Anastasia.
Rest of the army destroyed my objective.

4-3 on the scenario.

Devout did a few dmg to Charger in the left zone.
Durst casted Boundless Charge on himself and he also charged at Charger, ending his movement b2b with the flag.
Templar and Castigator tried to destroy Hurricane, but they failed.
Unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity/models to contest the right zone.

6-4 on the scenario.

End of 4th round :

Ace ran to contest left zone and flag.
Firefly killed two Choir members.
Caine came to score a point b2b with the right flag.
Rest of the army took care of Templar and Castigator.

6-6 on the scenario.

In my turn, Durst killed Ace and I gave up the game.
There was no point to play it longer, I would lose by scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Hurricane’s Cortex Damage has ruined my entire game plan.
    I will certainly remember about it in the future.
  • The starting roll is very important in this match.
    If I would start, it seems to be easier.
  • After a few Durst games in EXE theme, I already know that the best list will be in FM theme, with one or two Indictors.
    I’m going to check it out soon!
